A nearly three-year battle for a low-power FM in Monmouth County, NJ has come to an end.

The FCC last week gave its blessing to Hazler Hispanic Community Radio’s 2013 request to construct a new facility at 102.3 MHz in the town of Hazlet.

The Commission’s approval comes after an informal objection and two engineering amendments.

Hazler can now proceed with bringing the station to light. However, it will have its hands full ensuring that it doesn’t interfere with no less than three other stations sharing the 102.3 MHz within a 55-mile radius of Hazlet.

These stations include a big Cox Media Group Rocker and an iHeart Radio AC.
